Senior Team of the Year – Managers

Finnian Moriarty (Maghery)

In his two years in charge of Maghery, Finnian Moriarty has guided his men to a league title (2019) and now a championship (2020).

Their championship run this year will be remember for years and what made it more impressive was defeating Crossmaglen in the final.

He has been a huge success with this team and achieved the ultimate goal of guiding Maghery to their second ever Senior Championship crown.

Stephen Kernan (Crossmaglen)

While he didn’t achieve the three-in-a-row many predicted his side would, Kernan did get Cross to the county final.

He had them playing beautiful attacking football and that may have just gone against them in the final, but Kernan stuck to his beliefs.

Kernan has some of the best players in the county at his disposal and he gave youth a chance with new stars in Tony and Dara O’Callaghan.

Paul McArdle (Killeavy)

Transformed an out-of-sorts Killeavy side into a quality team this season and will look forward to developing them further in 2021.

His side beat Grange after extra time, saw off the Harps easily and went toe-to-toe with Crossmaglen in a game them could have won.

McArdle will be eyeing up a charge at the Senior Championship next season and knows the quality he has in his ranks.

Shane McConville (Pearse Ogs)

Has the ability to drag the best out of teams and install a never say die attitude, and we saw that with the Ogs this year.

They beat Cullyhanna and Madden to reach the last four for the first time in a number of years but just fell short against a superior Maghery team.

McConville has installed serious belief into the city side over the past two years, with two good championship season under his belt.
